ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—An official source from the Kurdish government has told Rudaw that Hollywood star Angelina Jolie arrives in the Kurdistan Region on Saturday to visit Syrian refugee camps.

“Angelina Jolie will arrive in the Kurdistan Region at 5 o’clock tomorrow afternoon, and she will be the guest of the United Nations for two days,” said the source.

Jolie who was appointed in April as Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), plans to visit refugee camps in Kurdistan Region’s Duhok province where hundreds of Kurdish families fleeing the violence in Syria are settled.

“She will visit the refugee camps of Kurdish families on Sunday,” the source told Rudaw.

This trip to the Kurdistan Region comes following visits by Jolie to camps in Turkey and Jordan where she and UNHCR commissioner Antonio Guterres met with Syrian refugees.

“With the violence in the conflict showing no signs of easing up and the numbers (of refugees) growing… it is a very large concern for all of us,” Jolie told the media in Ankara.

Dumiz is the largest Syrian refugee camp in Duhok. Muhammad Abdullah Hamo, director of immigration in Duhok told Rudaw last month that his office had registered 13, 721 Syrian refugees.

I feel sorry for her kids. She takes care of other countries children, but refuses to take care of her own. They are Brad’s children. She is just a media wh@re. Brad is learning his lesson and unfortunately so are Brad’s kids.

Angelina Jolie visits Turkish president, ministers in Ankara

14 September 2012 / TODAYSZAMAN.COM

The UN delegation first visited Turkish Interior Minister İdris Naim Şahin at his office. The gathering was closed to the press.

Jolie and Guterres then proceeded to the Turkish Prime Ministry headquarters for talks with Deputy Prime Minister Beşir Atalay.

Speaking during the visit, Atalay thanked the UN delegation for visiting the camps where Syrians have taken refuge.

Guterres and Jolie visited Syrians refugees on Thursday in a camp in the southeastern Turkish province of Kilis and praised Turkey’s efforts in hosting the Syrians.

Atalay said this visit was an important opportunity to draw the attention of the international community to the plight of the Syrians who have fled the violence in their country and thanked Jolie and Guterres for their positive comments about the camps in Kilis.

The deputy prime minister also said efforts are being made to offer education and health services for the Syrians, to be coordinated by the Turkish government, relevant institutions and the UN.

Atalay also thanked special envoy Jolie in particular for her involvement in the issue as someone with an “international profile” and for her role as a humanitarian.

Guterres, on his part, said he was very grateful for Turkey’s hospitality and commended the assistance Turkey is providing to Syrian refugees.

“We are extremely grateful for what has been the very generous policy of Turkey of granting them protection, allowing them to cross the border and providing assistance that I could witness is an assistance of a high standard,” Guterres said, also making a point of thanking officials in the camps for their efforts.

Following the meetings, Jolie and Guterres were hosted by Deputy Foreign Minister Naci Koru for a lunch at the Ankara Palas Hotel. After the lunch, the UN delegation met with President Abdullah Gül at the Çankaya presidential palace. The meeting, which lasted for 30 minutes, was closed to the press.

she must be pregnant because whats with all the baggy clothes

@Her poor kids:

Oh please. LOL. She has made sure her own kids are growing up responsibly and without the constant glare of cameras unlike Garner, Beckham, Stefani-Rossdale (all of whom I like) and especially Tom/Kat who parades Suri out constantly. When we do see the JP’s out with their kids they are doing kid-appropriate activities. If they are shopping it is in a toy store or a children’s clothing store. They are often caught going to and from museums and the like.
Educate yourself before you spew.

Is it just me or does anyone else think she looks pregnant? Not in the tummy, but in the boobs.

She looks beautiful and pregnant.

UN refugee agency head, special envoy meet senior Turkish officials, praise Turkey’s assistance to Syrians.

ANKARA

The head of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres and his special envoy actress Angelina Jolie met with senior Turkish officials in capital Ankara on Friday.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Guterres and Special Envoy Jolie first visited Turkish Interior Minister Idris Naim Sahin at his office. The gathering was closed to press.
The two representatives later proceeded to the Turkish prime ministry headquarters to hold talks with Deputy Premier Besir Atalay.
Speaking during the visit, Atalay thanked the UNHCR delegation for visiting the camps where Syrians under temporary protection in Turkey currently stayed.
Naming the visit an important opportunity to draw the attention of the international community to the ongoing tragedy in Syria, Atalay thanked Guterres and Jolie for their positive comments about the camps in southern province of Kilis.
“We pursue an ‘open doors’ policy for the refugees coming from Syria and we don’t send anybody back,” he said.
The deputy premier said efforts were also exerted to offer education and health services for Syrians under the coordination and close cooperation of Turkey, relevant institutions and the UN.
Atalay also thanked Special Envoy Jolie in particular for her involvement in the issue as an “international profile” and for her humanitarian role.
Guterres, in his part, said that he was extremely grateful for Turkey’s hospitality.
“The present phase is a much more exciting phase of cooperation between the government of Turkey and the UNHCR which started thanks to you,” he said.
Pointing to the assistance Turkey provided to Syrians, Guterres said, “We are extremely grateful for what has been the very generous policy of Turkey of granting them protection, allowing them to cross the border and providing assistance that I could witness is an assistance of high standard.”
He also thanked the officials in the camps who displayed efforts to guarantee the levels of assistance for Syrians who had experienced a dramatic situation back in their country.
“So my very deep appreciation for the work that has been done and we know this represents a huge challenge for Turkey. It is not only the impact of refugees themselves, this represents the rupture of important relations with a neighbor,” he noted.
The high commissioner also said Turkey’s “open doors” policy towards Syrians was important.

UN refugee agency head, special envoy praise Turkey’s assistance to Syrians

Guterres and Jolie have praised Turkey’s efforts to assist the Syrians who are fleeing the violence in their country.
Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Naci Koru, who hosted a banquet in honor of the two representatives prior to the press conference, told reporters that Turkish officials had briefed Guterres and Jolie on Turkey’s stance regarding the Syrian refugees and the activities carried out on the issue up until today.
Speaking to the Turkish press, UN High Commissioner for Refugees Guterres thanked Turkey for its assistance to Syrians.
“I would like to express my very deep gratitude and appreciation to the Turkish government and Turkish people for their policy not only to open borders, but to open hearts to the brothers and sisters that come from Syria,” he said.
Guterres also pointed to the enormous investment the Turkish government made and the quality of the services provided for the refugees in the camps.
The high commissioner called on the international community to fully support those who were inside Syria under very dramatic circumstances, as well as the Syrian refugees and the host countries Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq for burden and responsibility sharing.
“Finally an appeal that goes beyond the countries of the region, an appeal to all countries in Europe, in Africa, around the world and also in the region: ‘Keep your borders open to the Syrians that are fleeing such a dramatic conflict’,” he said.

Jolie: “I am grateful to Turkey”

UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie also expressed her appreciation over Turkey’s efforts.

“I am very grateful to Turkey and all the countries receiving the refugees and keeping them in safety and doing all that they can for children,” she said.
Jolie said she had seen during her visit to the camps that everything was well-organized and officials did their best to assist people in need.
“No one wants to live as a refugee, no one wants to live in a camp. All of these people have lost their homes, they have fled extreme violence, they have lost their families, they are very very emotional. They are very grateful to Turkey, they are very grateful to all the border countries,” she said.
Jolie also noted that Syrian refugees knew about the ongoing discussions about the situation in their country, but despite all the news reports, they still felt alone and abandoned.
“I share everyone’s concerns about the winter approaching with the violence and the conflict showing no signs of easing up and the number is growing as people are crossing the borders. It is a very large concern for all of us and I hope we can all work together to make sure that nobody freezes to death in this very very frightening time,” she said.
“So thank you very much, I look forward to working with all of you here to continue to assist these people. I feel so grateful again to the Turkish government for all that they do,” Jolie concluded her speech.
After the press conference, Guterres and Jolie proceeded to the Cankaya Presidential Palace to meet with Turkish President Abdullah Gul.
Upon completion of their talks, the two UNHCR representatives departed from Turkey.

Her poor kids @ 09/14/2012 at 5:21 pm

Keep defending them danii. They need all the help they can get. Those celebrity kids you named will be the normal kids in Hollywood when they grow up. They will also be the beautiful kids of Hollywood, not her kids. This Ho’s kids will be so confused and most likely learn what their munster mom is really about. Of course Brad will be long gone by then. Her playtex living bra is showing through her ugly BLACK outfit. I guess she needs something to hold them up. You can tell they would be saggy if she didn’t wear a support bra and hold her chest out like she does. She looks like a dog in heat!

I use to really dislike her and was totally on Jen’s side during that whole mess, but now I really like her. She puts herself in danger by visiting foreign places to make a difference. It’s much more admirable than Jen’s “smartwater” bs.

I really miss Shiloh pictures. Angy is beautiful in her usual black. She’s doing a great labour.

her boob look huge

Speaking of dogs, freak, tuck your tail between your fat, blubberous thighs and high tail it to some lowlife troll depot where you belong…..you do NOT belong on the thread of someone as elevated as the iconic, Angelina Jolie. You are so far beneath her you couldn’t carry her water or spit shine her shoes.

What a woman,for all those that continue to put her down despit the topic, I praise the almighty, she appears to very happy with her purpose in life. I remember other high profile people that was actually in it for the whole job and not those that make a brief appearance to show face but never sticking with it. Angelina is to be truly commended for her tireless dedication. It makes a really good story if comments can stick to the topic of today and not yesterday’s old topics. Angelina is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.
